Highgate Cemetery LONDON
Today I’m going to show you some pictures from my visit to this amazing place called Highgate Cemetery, just about one hour from the City of London’s hectic pulse. I’m a huge fan and admirer of this enchanted spot on earth. It lush, green, so very beautiful and calm.
The cemetery’s grounds are full of mature trees, shrubbery and wild flowers all of which have been planted and grown without human influence. ( I don’t think that is completely true) I found a numerous wild flowers like for instance Bluebells Scilla non-scripta and Ramsons Allium ursinum. The guide told me that in a few weeks the wild poppies Papaver will bloom and can you imagine the red ‘lanterns’ lighten up the grounds. It must be wonderful. The grounds are a haven for birds and small animal. The cemeterys tree crowns form a wonderful most amazing canopy and the sound in the cemetery or the lack of noice is overwhelming.
If you want to visit The Highgate Cemetery I recommend you to go to the official website of Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust
